Murder, Sling Blade-Style

Confession, and a Yard Sale
By Cathy Salustri
In a phone call reminiscent of
Karl Childers confession at the end
of Sling Blade, Gulfport resident
Riley Bryan, 67, called 911 just
before 9 o'clock Saturday night
and told operators he had shot his
roommate, Donald Price, 52.
Bryan fatally shot Price in the
head in the presence of Susan
Vinson, who identified herself as
Price's wife, and Bryan's brother,
Carter Bryan. Witnesses say that Donald Price, 52 was
the two disagreed and Bryan got a murdered on Saturday
gun and started shooting.
Neither the witnesses nor Bryan will tell police the subject

Gulfport Car Show and Antique
Fair All Part of a Busy Afternoon


By Leigh Clifton
This classic, perfectly refurbished 1957 Chevy Nomad station wagon
was among the many automotive masterpieces at Saturday's Auto
show.
Gulfport was bustling last weekend, really bustling with
a full array of activities that catered to just about every-
one's taste. First Frii.iL Art Walk was jam-packed with
vendors and buyers; it seemed like everyone was

St. Pete Beach
Delays Coconut
Inn Vote
For the second time in a
row, The St. Pete Beach
City Commission voted to
postpone the public hearing
and first reading for an
ordinance that would change
the city's comprehensive plan
and land development code.
If approved, the ordinance
would allow the owner of the
recently-rehabbed mom-and-
pop vacation rental formerly
known as the LeRoy Motel
(now the updated Coconut Inn)
to redevelop if the property
were to ever fall into disrepair
decades down the road. The
discussion has been moved
to the January 12, 2010 City
Commission meeting.

Assessment
Ordinance
Makes Waves
ST. PETE BEACH -A number
of beach residents expressed
grave concern over the City
Commission's approval of
an ordinance that would, if
approved upon final reading,
establish a framework for
imposing assessments against
landowners if the city sees fit.
Although city officials have
stressed that this will not
result in unnecessary taxes
being levied against citizens,
some audience membersvoiced
concern over the implications
of the bill.
Long-time resident Bruno
Falkenstein said that, while
he believes that the current
administration would behave
ethically, he fears what future
administrations would do.

Local Shops 1 Named
Business of the Month
"Save money, shop happy, support

of LocalShopsl.com states Founder
Ester Venouziou. "For all of the
efforts of helping keep independent
small businesses thriving in a difficult
economy and also giving back to the
community, the Gulfport Chamber of
Commerce has named them business
of the month." stated Lori Rosso,
Chamber President.
LocalShopsl.com was launched
August 2008 and is already Tampa
Bay's largest network of local,
independent business owners and
independent-minded shoppers in
the Tampa Bay area (more than
2,500 registered members and 800
businesses).
"Local businesses are the foundation
of our economy ... plus just a lot more
fun to shop in." states Venouziou.
LocalShopsl.com was created
because she found that a lot of
people defaulted to the malls or the
Big Box stores because they didn't
know where else to go. Many small

Assessment,
from front page
"It scares me just as bad as the new
health bill up in Congress scares me,"
he said. "You are going to give (future
administrations) a tool, that anytime
they desire they can tax us and make
an assessment against us."
One of the primary impetuses of the
ordinance was the city's desire to
establish a stormwater utility and
a means of revenue with which to
fund it. It would allow the city to
generate taxpayer funding for other
expenses not already covered in the
city's budget, which may include the
exorbitant legal fees the city has been
experiencing in recent years.
Commissioner Jim Parent said that
the ordinance wouldn't allow for
frivolous taxation.
"This is just the overall framework
to create the ability to have these
assessments," he said. "They're
controlled, they're targeted, they're
very specific."
St. Pete Beach Mayor Mike Finnerty
spoke plainly on his dissent.
"It doesn't feel right to me at this
time," he said.
The Commission also approved an
action item that will authorize the
Cith Manager to sign a work order
for law firm Bryant Miller Olive to
"develop a special assessment revenue
source" for a prospective stormwater
utility for the city.
The move will cost the city an
estimated $69,425.75 and would take
approximately six to eight weeks to
implement.
Mayor Finnerty offered one of the two
"no" votes.
"I'm thinking that we just don't have
the money to do this right now," he
said.

Antiques, from front page

out on the streets enjoying the
cooler weather. Although it was a
bit breezy, people strolled Beach
Boulevard, stopping at booths,
listening to street music as they
shopped. On Saturday, ('lI in -r Park
was crammed full with hundreds
of people who came out to enjoy an
antique fair and the Gulfport Car
show.
At the car show, car enthusiasts
from all over Florida exhibited
beautifully shiny and totally
untouchable specimens of unrivaled
steel elegance; everything from a
1957 Chevy Nomad station wagon,
a 1960 Triumph Roadster, complete
with rumble seat, to a replica of
Herby the Love Bug, with a drive-
in tray hanging from the passenger
side window, sporting an A&W
Root Beer mug and a plate with a
burger and French fries. There were
muscle cars; new and old Camaros,
Mustangs, GTOs, Chevy Malibu
SS's and Corvettes. Some were
customized and some were lovingly
restored to the original pristine
condition.
The antique fair had everything
from soup to nuts; one shopper
found an antique glass washboard,
something she had been looking
for for quite some time. There were
antique bicycles, quilts, jewelry,
clothing, china, bric-a-brac, framed
artwork and furniture. Many folks
browsed the booths, getting some
great ideas for Christmas gifts.

Letters
Something' on His Mind!
Dear Editor: I can no longer hold
my tongue, as a resident of Gulfport I
want it known that Bill Northrop in
his "Somethin' on my Mind" column in
NO way reflects the general thoughts
of many in the city of Gulfport.
If Bill's opinion matches the Gab-
ber company's opinion of these is-
sues, then please be up front enough
to make that clear in the publication.
While I used to forward the Gabber to
friends of mine around the country as
a "piece of Gulfport", I now find it im-
possible to do so with Bill's obviously
slanted, often uneducated and blind-
to-fact opinions expressed and unla-
beled as purely his opinion.
If I could at least find at the head of
the article that these were his person-
al views and not the views of the pub-
lication or any of it's affiliates, I would
feel better about forwarding the Gab-
ber and chalking it up to a "quirky lo-
cal old guy who really doesn't do his
current world-wide news and science
research".
Frankly, even when there is some-
thing about which he may be on the
right track, he inevitably says some-
thing to alienate me and show his
true lack of knowledge and/or re-
search about a particular subject. If
you as a publication are going to run a
pure opinion piece, label it as such in
a very obvious way. It's called an Op/
Ed piece.
Deb LeClercq


Remember Our
Veterans
Dear Editor: November 11 was
the anniversary of the Armistice
which was signed by the Allies and
Germans in 1918 ending World War
I. The word "armistice" means simply
a truce. After WWII, there were
many new veterans who had little or
no association with WWI. Therefore
as years passed the significance of
the name of this holiday changed.
Veterans groups decided to make
November 11 the time to honor all
who had fought in various American
wars, not just in WWI. The name
was changed to Veterans Day by an
Act of Congress on May 24, 1954.
In October of that year President
Eisenhower called on citizens to
observe the day by remembering the
sacrifices of all those who fought so
gallantly.
The WWII veterans will soon
be gone and we must honor and
remember them while they are still
here. Yes, we are still in a war in Iraq
and Afghanistan. On this Veterans
Day and every day, remember our
troops and hope and pray that they
will come home and enjoy the life
that we have here in the USA. God
bless our veterans past and present.
God bless America.
Tony Fiore

City may allow
A-frame signs
ST. PETE BEACH Citing the
economy, City Commissioner Jim
Parent argued in favor of a draft
ordinance that would, once again,
allow business owners to display
A-frame signs on the sidewalks
that front their businesses. He said
that he got the idea out of concern
over the visibility of some Corey
Avenue businesses from major
thoroughfares.
"In my mind this is doing something
in these tough economic times for
small businesses," he said.
City Attorney Mike Davis said that
it would not have been possible for
the City Commission to expedite
legislation that would reverse a
law that bars business owners from
displaying such signs at Tuesday's
meeting, given that the law is a land
development regulation. But the city
can get such an item approved, with
time to spare, ahead of Christmas.
First it must pass through the
planning board. Then, the City
Commission will need to pass it
through two readings.
The earliest that A-frame signs
would be legal would be directly
after the December eighth City
Commission meeting.
"We can make things happen," said
City Commissioner Bev Garnett.
"We are the Commission, darn it."

Foster a Fast Friend
Meet Celia, a female white and brindle greyhound who
is a perfect candidate for a foster home. Fostering duties
include teaching our kennel raised hounds how to live in
a home, and to get an idea of the dog's personality in or-
der to place them with the perfect forever family. It is
a fun way to get to meet lots of different dogs than you
would be able to own yourself. Foster homes are given
food and flea/heartworm meds, so there's usually no ex-
pense except for supplying comfy bedding and food bowls. Call Greyhound Pets
of America at (727) 595-7852, visit www.greyhoundpets.com, or see them at
the Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays from noon to 2 p.m.

M murder, from front page
of the roommates' disagreement.
"We're getting different stories. The
only person who knows for sure what
the argument about would be Riley
and he's not talking," Interim Chief
of Police Howard Coombs told The
Gabber.
Sergeant Mike Marotta reached the
crime scene first. Police say when the
occupants opened the door Marotta
saw the bloody victim on the floor and
went inside to make sure the home
was secure. A team of officers worked
the case that evening, and Sergeant
Rob Burkhart arrested Riley and
charged him with three counts
of aggravated assault as well as
homicide. Police arrested Bryan just
over two years ago for possession of
cocaine, according to public record.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs
Forensic Unit and the Medical
Examiner's Office processed the scene
and removed the body and Detective
Jimmie Embry continues to handle
the case in Gulfport.
Police logs show multiple police
calls at the Bryan residence over the
years, including 15 so far this year.
"Riley Bryan has a record of
police contact. He had a reputation
for letting people come and go,"
Lieutenant Robert Vincent noted,
adding that many such roommates
weren't of the most moral character
and the police received frequent calls
from Bryan's residence, located at
2620 49th Street. The complaints
often dealt with theft and posed a
challenge for officers.

"He'd had guns stolen before.
(These crimes are) almost always
very difficult to investigate because
he let these people come and go,"
Vincent said.
Bryan's most recent roommate,
Price, had a diverse criminal record
with charges ranging from simple
battery to possession of cocaine.
Three years ago Price and Vinson
lived close to Councilwoman Michele
King and were the intended targets
of a drive-by shooting. This incident


prompted King to champion the city's
anti-drug program, DAWG.
This murder breaks Gulfport's six-
year run without any murders. The
last murder, in 2003, resulted from
two men arguing over a pocketknife
in the Arts District. One man shot
and killed the other as a result of
this spirited disagreement.
Following K.I uIl.i- ni'hl s shooting
the Bryan residence participated
in the citywide yard sale Sunday
morning, police say.

Passion Not Enough to Stop Drilling in Gulf
By Cathy Salustri

At the Suncoast League of Cities town hall meeting on offshore drilling
last Thursday night, elected officials from St. Petersburg and Pinellas County
joined Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes and council members Bob Worthington
and Judy Ryerson to show their support for opposing offshore drilling. A
passionate audience joined them at the Gulfport Casino, where they heard
from representatives on both sides of the issue. The audience cheered for
those who opposing drilling (such as Shahra Anderson, a representative from
Senator Bill Nelson's office) and booing those who endorse it (such as Gene
Shinn, a courtesy professor at the University of South Florida who used to
work for Shell Oil.)
Despite the fervor coursing through the room, even if the three represented
governments join with the Suncoast League of Cities in passing a resolution
opposing offshore drilling, the only government that has the power to approve
or deny a permit for offshore drilling is the federal government and, to some
extent, the state of Florida.
As speakers explained, Florida waters extend roughly nine and a half
nautical miles off the coast of Florida; anything past that point falls under
federal jurisdiction. Florida currently has a ban on offshore drilling that
stops companies from drilling in state waters, although the Florida House
of Representatives voted 70-43 to repeal the ban on offshore drilling in the
Gulf.
"The recent past gives us a very clear understanding of the way the oil
lobby and their representatives in the Florida House do business," Florida
Representative Rick Kriseman said of the recent vote. "An amendment was
filed which would have allowed oil drilling just three to ten miles off our
coasts. This amendment was filed after 9 p.m. the night before it was to be
presented in council."
Kriseman went on to call the decision whether or not to drill "the biggest
decision in our state's history" and say that it "was a surprise to see such an
amendment filed just before most people go to bed and debated before many
people eat breakfast."
Florida Senate President Jeff Atwater announced Monday that Senate
Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee would conduct a
"detailed and comprehensive review of the implications of offshore drilling."
Atwater called offshore drilling a "complicated" issue with "significant
ramifications" for Florida. He also described offshore drilling as "one element
of the larger energy discussion facing Florida."
Even if the Florida Senate votes to uphold the ban on drilling in the 9 12
miles off Florida's coast, the federal government can vote to allow drilling in
waters 10 miles or more offshore.
The only representative from the federal government to attend Thursday's
meeting and gather public input was a representative from Senator Bill
Nelson's office, Shahra Anderson.



Arts Council to Host Author Craig Pittman
The South Pasadena Cultural Arts Council will host guest speaker Craig
Pittman, author of "Paving Paradise", Florida's Vanishing Wetlands and the
Failure of No Net Loss on Thursday, November 19 at 5 p.m. at South Pasadena
City Hall, 7047 Sunset Drive S.. Mr. Pittman has covered a variety of newspaper
beats and quite a few natural disasters including hurricanes, wildfires and
the Florida Legislature. Since 1998 he has reported on environmental issues
for the Times. His work won the Waldo Proffitt Award for Distinguished
Environmental Journalism in Florida in 2004, 2006 and 2007 and a series of
stories on Florida's vanishing wetlands that he wrote with Matthew Waite won
the top investigative reporting award in both 2006 and 2007 from the Society

!Somethin' on my mind
h By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com
Has the Government Gone Mad?


Have our leaders gone mad?
Thirteen innocent soldiers
were killed and 30 wounded
by a military officer/psychiatrist who
turned out to be a Muslim extrem-
ist with possible ties to other Amer-
ican-Muslim extremist/agitators and
we're worried about offending other
Muslim Americans or fracturing re-
lations with Muslims around the
world.
Instead of worrying about other pos-
sible "sleeper" extremists/terrorists,
the FBI was quick to declare that this
wasn't a terrorist attack. On top of
that, Homeland Security sprang into
action (we don't know what action) to
make certain Americans don't react
negatively to other American Mus-
lims.
How about protecting us first? How
about springing into action to de-
termine whether there are others
out there with similar feelings and
thoughts? To begin with the FBI ap-
pears to have blown this case by not
following through on investigations


of Dr. Nadal Hasan's earlier state-
ments and actions. They knew about
his tendencies six months ago.
Political correctness is making us
unsafe. What is, is. Not all Muslims
in this country or elsewhere are ex-
tremist killer terrorists, but all the
terrorists are Muslim. They're not
only blowing us up, they are blowing
up fellow Muslims. But, we're sup-
posed to act like that's only inciden-
tal.
Homeland Security seems more con-
cerned about the Tea Party protes-
tors, and National Rifle Association
members than the real threats.
No one wants to start discriminat-
ing against ALL Muslims and as far
as I know there haven't been violent
American reactions against Muslims
as a group. And, no one wants to start
anti-Muslim street protests. Ours is,
by all standards, a religiously toler-
ant society. Hasan's supposed ha-
rassment in the military for being a
Muslim stemmed from his own anti-
American views. Hasan, by the way,

S Auto Commercial


is not an immigrant. He was born in
the United States.
At the same time, Muslim-Ameri-
cans, or American-Muslims haven't
exactly been front and center in
confronting the extremists in their
midst. Perhaps too many are fright-
ened that harm might come to them
if they do. It has in Iraq, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Lebanon and Gaza.
On the other hand, thousands of
U.S. soldiers practice the Muslim
faith. Like other Americans they
are volunteer soldiers and, as far as
we know, with the exception being
Hasan, they have been loyal, normal
American soldiers.
However, that doesn't mean we
should ignore the reality of Muslim
terrorists, or, in a mode of political
correctness put up straw men to blunt
the reality of the situation. Quit talk-
ing down to the American public and
get on with the job of protecting us.

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Gulfport's first town hall went up in 1913
about where the dog park is now located.
It cost precisely $1259.75, was painted
yellow, and even wired for electricity.
In 1927 it was moved to the present city
complex on 53rd Street, as shown in last
week's photo. It stood until it was auc-
tioned off for the materials in 1953, lasting
the exact amount of time 40 years -- as
its successor, which was built in 1954 and
replaced in 1994 with today's city hall.

bringing it back to half-staff where it stayed in honor of the slain soldiers at Fort Hood Military

Roser Park Art Festival


by Leign ;liTton
Historic Roser Park in downtown St. Petersburg held their six annual Art Festival last
weekend, but the anticipated crowds never quite showed up. In part due to the slow
economy, the anticipated 10,000 visitors were reduced to a few thousand but those that
did attend were treated to some wonderful art, food and music. Renovated bungalows of
multihued colors and large stately homes jutting out from the hills served as a picturesque
backdrop for the people who strolled along the curved water canals. The day was hot, but
the large trees along the canals provided much needed shade as people shopped and
enjoyed the day out.

St. Pete Beach Planning Department

Approves Demolition of Surf Style

By Kate Bradshaw
It wasn't their original intent, but the proprietors of Surf Style leveled the
57-year-old building that sat at the corner of Causeway and Gulf Boulevards
in Treasure Island. City Planner Lynn Rosetti said that they had originally
planned on preserving much of the building, which housed a Surf Style shop
and a Chinese restaurant, but changed their plans after they discovered the
degree to which the building's structural integrity had diminished.
This discovery led to an emergency meeting last Wednesday during which
they asked the Treasure Island Planning Board for permission to revise their
redevelopment plan. The department granted this, and within days what
remained of the structure external walls that Rosetti said were "not in good
shape at all" was dismantled.
The new structure, which Rosetti says will likely be completed by the spring
break season, will once again house Surf Style and will likely contain a pizza
restaurant.
"It will still be designed in the original plan that was approved" by the city,
Rosetti said.

Attorney Keith Sanders Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity
By Greg Stem


Guess you could say my motto
is'been there, done that'," says
.LKeith Sanders, from the law
office ofAndre Keith Sanders, P.A.
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience as an attorney specializing
in handling "literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he has dealt
with virtually any kind of problem
or issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never been
in a situation where they have been
worried about how to keep the lights
on, but I have been there myself so I
can really relate to what people are
going through," said Sanders. "Plus,
many people are very embarrassed
when they come to me, but I when I
tell them how embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in front of judges
and colleagues who knew me and go
through the process myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people more at ease
and understand that I have been there
and done that MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of bank-
ruptcy cases the situation is that bad
things happen to good people and then
they have gotten into a bad situation.
They have gone through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce or perhaps
someone has just gotten in over their
head with debt. It's very easy in to-
day's consumer driven society for that
to happen," said Sanders.
Sanders offers a free initial consul-
tation with no set time limit on it. "It
might take 20 minutes or it might
take two hours, it just depends of the
client's individual set of circumstanc-
es," he said. "We can meet at their
home or in my office, we can even so
it over the phone ifI they can provide
me with the financial information we
need to discuss their situation." Sand-
ers says that he can often offer other
solutions besides bankruptcy such
as re-negotiating payment schedules
with creditors or reorganizing per-
sonal finances. "For example, I often
have people who can avoid bankrupt-
cy if they just get out from under the
burden of a house they can no longer


afford because of a job loss or some
other situation," he noted.
He moved to the Tampa Bay area
in July 2005 from Atlanta where he
was a partner/owner of Hamilton &
Sanders, LLC a firm specializing in
consumer bankruptcy and real es-
tate closings. The firm regularly filed
between 40-60 bankruptcy cases a
month. Prior to that he worked for
three other major law firms in Atlan-
ta from 1992 to 2003. All three firms
specialized in consumer bankruptcy
cases. He began his career as a staff
attorney for the United States Trust-
ee in Atlanta. He is licensed to prac-
tice law in both Florida and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I feel like I
can help people get a fresh start," said
Sanders. "When you have financial
difficulties it can really affect your
entire life. It has negative implica-
tions on you emotionally and it can
even damage or ruin your personal
relationships. I do try and encourage
people to come see me early on, even
if they are just starting to get behind
in payments or feel they are in over
their head. If you can start working
with an attorney from the very start
it can really reduce your stress level
as I can stop harassing creditor calls.
I can also see if we can work out ar-
rangements that a creditor might not
consider when working directly with
my client."
"Since the initial consultation is
free, you really don't have anything
to lose to meet with me and we can


assess your situation and see how
it might be best for you to proceed.
Bankruptcy can be one solution to
getting back on your feet financially,
but it may not be the best or only so-
lution for you. As an experienced pro-
fessional, I can help you sort through
those issues and see what is right for
you," he noted.
Sanders has held a number of semi-
nars and written professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in gen-
eral, ECF requirements and new is-
sues. He is a former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar
of Georgia.
Outside of the courtroom, Sanders
lives in an unusual home in Gulfport
that was one of the featured prop-
erties in last year's Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes. It has a tree grow-
ing right up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of his kitchen.
He has three dogs and a cat. When
he was living in Atlanta he was very
involved with helping raise funds for
a number of AIDS service organiza-
tions. He is hoping to get involved
with local charitable groups as soon
as possible.

There are few venues on this planet in which swan-necked Egyptian queen
Nefertiti must compete with Barry Manilow for the attention of passersby.
Last Saturday's Community-wide Yard Sale, which took place at the St.
Pete Beach Community Center, was one of these. The event offered an
astonishingly diverse array of used goods. The two aforementioned quasi-
deities one portrayed by way of wood carving, the other in compact disc
format happened to be displayed on the same table. One has to wonder
which went first and at what price. Pictured: Clare Kachelriess shows off her

City Seeks Public Comment on Upham Project
Monday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m.
Hallock says that the committee will
make its recommendations on the
project to the City Commission.
Stakeholder comments are due to
the county by November 24.
To view the county's presentation,
visit www.stpetebeach.org.


upnam Deacn was proieciea Dy I-groins during Iropical storm iaa earlier Inis weeK. I ne
county hopes to replace them with a more effective means of holding in the sand.


By Kate Bradshaw

ST. PETE BEACH The
northernmost segment of St. Pete
Beach, a spot called Upham Beach,
has some serious longshore drift,
which continually carries away the
sand from its shores. This means
that the popular beach currently has
to be renourished every three years,
a process that involves dredging
tons of sand from nearby swaths of
ocean floor and spitting it all up on to
the beach. The next renourishment
project, funded federally (60%), by
the state and by Pinellas County
(20% each), is slated for late winter
or early spring of 2010.
This project will also entail repairing
the beach's damaged T-groins those
yellow T-shaped structures that look
like submerged school buses, which
have been subject to vandalism.
But local officials believe that they
can reduce the beach's need for so
many of these projects aimed at
replenishing the beach.
The county hopes to start replacing
the beach's T-groins with more
effective mechanisms for holding in
the sand at Upham Beach in 2012
or 2013. The state will provide half
of the I'"'r,' I's funding while the
Pinellas County Tourist Development
Council (bed tax) funds will cover the


other half.
Andy Squires, Assistant Director of
the Pinellas County Department of
Environmental Management, says
that permanent rock structures will
replace T-groins.
InaPowerPointpresentationrecently
delivered to the St. Pete Beach City
Commission, representatives from
Pinellas County reported that there
were four different ways to construct
the new barriers, but each had a
different price as well as a different
impact on certain key Upham Beach
characteristics like beach width and
surf break.
Upham Beach, which had once been
one of the Gulf Coast's most popular
surf spots, lost much of its surf after
the T-groins were installed, to the
chagrin of local surfers.
City of St. Pete Beach Public Services
Director Stephen Hallock says that
Pinellas County held meetings to
seek public comment on the proposed
beach stabilization project since
earlier this year.
"These were very well attended by
stakeholders," Hallock said. "The
second stakeholder meeting had to
be held in our Community Center to
accommodate the number of people
who attended."
The City of St. Pete Beach will hold
a Beach Stewardship meeting this

Travel Resort Services- Showing Your Guests the Best of the Beaches


By Cathy Salustri

If you're like most people
who live in Florida, you
have friends and family
who live up north and love to
come visit you. And, while you
love to see them, you don't re-
ally have the space for them
to stay with you comfortably.
Or maybe you have a dog and
your brother, who lives in
Wisconsin but loves to spend
Thanksgiving with you, has
severe allergies. No matter the
reason, Travel Resort Services
has fully-equipped condos to
accommodate them.
Travel Resort Services, or
TRS, is the largest vacation
condo rental agency on Flori-
da's west coast. TRS has over
400 condos from St. Pete Beach
to Indian Shores. Because TRS
represents such a wide range
of condos they offer condos to
fit every family size and every
budget. Every condo they rent
has a fully-equipped kitchen
and a swimming pool. Most of
their condos have private bal-
conies as well.
Here are just a few condo com-
plexes your friends and family
could stay when they come to
visit:
* The Gulf Winds Resort on
Upham Beach is a short trol-
ley ride from Gulfport. The
Gulf Winds has studios as
well as one and two bedroom
condos.

SThe Gulf Strand Resort on
St. Pete Beach is directly the
beach. The Gulf Strand offers
luxury one-bedroom, two bath
condos with private balconies.
Additionally, Madeira Bay
Resort has a beautiful 2,000
square-foot function room
available for wedding recep-
tions, birthday parties, and
family reunions.


Gabber November 12 November 18, 2009


* The new Madeira Bay Re-
sort, right next to John's Pass
in Madeira Beach, has gor-
geous one and two bedroom
condos. Madeira Bay offers
guests private balconies, in-
unit washers and dryers, and
free wireless internet service.
Madeira Bay has some condos
that allow pets, a full-service
European-style spa and a full-
service marina where guests
can rent slips for their boats.
* Boca Ciega Resort on Boca
Ciega Bay (near Bay Pines)
has affordable studio, one
and two bedroom condos with
great views of the Intracoastal
waterway. This resort has
an expansive waterfront pool
deck and is just a five-minute
ride to the beach. There are
pet-friendly units available,
and the Pinellas Trail is right
across the street.
These are just a few of the
condos TRS has available for


your guests, but they're cer-
tainly not the only condomini-
ums they have on offer. TRS
has many large two and three
bedroom Gulf-front condomini-
ums with balconies. These con-
dos overlook the Gulf of Mexico
on Treasure Island, Madeira
Beach, Redington Beach and
Indian Shores.
Guests can reserve with con-
fidence with TRS; they've been
in business for 25 years. They
also have a 24-hour full house-
keeping and maintenance
staffs, so if anything isn't quite
right TRS can make it right-
right away.
TRS also offers golf and spa
packages. Visit the TRS web-
site at trsinc.com to view all
properties and also the current
specials. Who knows, you may
decide to let Aunt Sally have
your house while you spend
the week at one of their beach
condos?

Multi-Hull Races Bring an International Flair to Gulfport Beach

r~I ~ -F E 1W I L--II.1*


viper 10 multi-null Doat designer ureg uooaall, OT Australia ana nis sailing partner really Kreuger, Trom iowa, Ty past n
Challenge races on Tuesday. Most of the boats in the races this week are Goodall's designed Viper 16.


By Leigh Clifton

Gulfport Beach was awash in color
as over 30 competitive sailors from
five countries arrived to compete in
the Global Challenge. The multi-hull
race, featuring F-16 Vipers, a twin-
hull catamaran, is being sponsored
by Gulfport Yacht Club and the
City of Gulfport. The racers are here
until Saturday and will race at least
three races a day for points and
time, with the final race Saturday
afternoon. The course is set up out
in front of Gulfport Beach, on Boca
Ciega Bay. Racers from Switzerland,
The Netherlands, Canada, US, and
Australia are here to compete in the
Challenge. Greg Goodall of Australia
is the designer of the Viper and both
he and his son Brett are also sailing
competitors.
"This is such a great thing for
Gulfport," Mayor Mike Yakes said
smiling, as he came down to the beach
to welcome the racers. "Gulfport is not
only the true gateway to the Gulf, it's
now becoming internationally known
for this type of racing. It brings great
business to the City and we are truly
happy to help host this event."
Bob Feckner, of GPYC, said that


many of the racers signed up when
they learned the Challenge was to be
in Gulfport.
"So many of these sailors were here
for the Alter Cup (another multi-
hull race) last year. They loved the
city and the beach here is perfect for
launching for the races."
These guys (and gals) are serious
racers; they weren't about to let a
little wind of 18-25 knots from a
small storm named Ida stop them
from taking out their Viper 16s for a
test run Tuesday morning. Although
a few had some minor equipment
snafus, (read spinnakers tangling
and halyards snapping) everyone
was busy fine-tuning for the rest of
the week's racing. The boats were
flying across the bay and cut through
the choppy water with the razor
sharpness of an expensive kitchen
knife.
The Global Challenge continues
through Saturday on Gulfport Beach,
with awards to be presented on the
beach that afternoon.
It's rare to be able to see such truly
international world class sailing
right in our own back yard; come out
and be a part of it.

"Do I take

medication for

osteoporosis?

I remember to

take it."

Qualified participants will receive all study-related care and study medication at
no cost. Compensation may be available for time and travel to those who qualify

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.
POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
G.B.
